Introduction

Matcha is green tea powder you can find in health food stores. I put sweetened Adzuki beans on mine before putting them in the oven but you could use walnuts.
If you want to try the beans, just take some canned Adzuki, enough to sprinkle a few on each muffin, add 2 tbsp water and 2 tbsp of sugar, bring to a boil, then let sit for 15 minutes so that the beans soak up the sugar. These beans are popular in Japan and often used as a paste in desserts.
